Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I was speaking purely in terms of avoiding food poisoning or stomach flu, not nasty chemicals, let alone taste. Sanitation and refrigeration are more consistent among the larger scale producers - the pork at Pani Marysia's stand will have been sitting out for a while and the eggs will be speckled with chickenshit.  But to be fair I haven't seen any studies and I may just be projecting off of the number of times I've gotten sick in Poland. However, I've hear the same thing from people who have lived in Africa or Asia - the market stuff tastes amazing but be ready to get sick on a regular basis.
